Today's Action Alert

Today's Actions comes from NRDC -- and it's easy. NRDC is starting a blog that will focus on efforts to prevent the Bush administration from destroying the environment. Check out their new blog today and bookmark it so you can visit frequently.


Dear NRDC Action Fund Supporter,

Right now, the Bush Administration and its allies in Congress are working to

pass sweeping, pro-industry legislation that would sacrifice our heritage and

health for decades to come.

For all of us at the NRDC Action Fund, that can mean only one thing: it's time

to fight back. Now more than ever, we need to protect our precious wildlands

from drilling, defend our clean air and water from pollution and take urgently

needed action to stop and reverse global warming.

But we can't do it without building a bigger and stronger community of people

like you.

Last week, we launched a Blog -- an interactive, online diary -- to serve as a

gathering place for everyone who wants to stop the Bush Administration's

outrageous assaults on our environment:

Hosted by the NRDC Action Fund's own Frances Beinecke, the Blog will give you

the chance to exchange comments, participate in online chats and -- most

importantly -- get organized to take action. With personal reflections and a

fresh look at the issues, Frances will call attention to the dangers posed by

the Bush Administration's policies and tell you about what you can do to help

stop them.

Beginning tomorrow, Laurie David -- NRDC Action Fund trustee, co-founder of the

Detroit Project and wife of comedy writer Larry David -- will be our first

featured guest blogger. And stay tuned, because some of the most eloquent and

active voices in the environmental movement will soon follow in her footsteps

as guest bloggers.

Please visit the NRDC Action Fund Blog daily at

and get involved.

Thanks to people like you, I am optimistic that we will succeed in defending

America's natural heritage for ourselves and all future generations.
